Discovery Intermediate School is the only STEM middle school in our district, and the first middle school in the country to partner with Discovery Education. The school has two Project Lead the Way (PLTW) instructors offering STEM classes in Design & Modeling, Automation & Robotics, Flight & Space, and Medical Detectives. Discovery Intermediate also launched a Navy Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (Navy JROTC) Program this school year. The Navy JROTC program will focus on:
Developing self-reliance and responsiveness to all authority
Improving the ability to communicate well both orally and in writing
Developing an appreciation of the importance of physical fitness
Developing a knowledge of team building skills and basic military skills
Introducing STEM career opportunities, experiences and challenges that the Navy and workforce have to offer
